If you've been assigned to read an article from the Harvard Business Review and access the full-text from the SMC Library's subscription to the Business Source Complete ("EBSCOhost") database, you may discover that you aren't allowed to save or print the article. Unfortunately, Harvard has put restrictions on printing and saving their top 500 articles. If you see that the print and save icons are grayed out, the article is one of those 500. In these cases, the only option within copyright is to

  1. read it only online
  2. photocopy the print copy of the journal we have in the Library, or
  3. purchase printing rights to the article from Harvard's website (usually about $7-8 per article)

Contact the Reference Desk if you need more information.
